Rethinking our social ecosystem

Das Institut für Design & Kommunikation lädt zu Lunch & Lecture am Mittwoch, dem 7. November von 12:10 bis 13:00 Uhr im Atelier im 4. Stock der Alten Poststraße 152 ein. Peter Stebbing hält einen Vortrag mit dem Titel Rethinking our social ecosystem.

The heavy human footprint on the planet, as we all know, is unsustainable. There are many stra- tegies which we can adopt to reduce our demands on the planet. For example, we could replace much of consumerism with more culture since the biggest resource we possess are humans. What changes could we make that would provide a more stimulating and satisfying existence? This presentation proposes some changes.
